There’s no denying that this summer has been especially dry. With so many forest fires happening in and around the Southwest, it’s ever more important to be aware of how we treat the forest and just what products we take out on camping trips, hikes, and even afternoon picnics. In light of the recent closure of the San Juan National Forest
and the ongoing drought conditions facing the Centennial State, your trusted weed shops in Denver want to help you continue enjoying your high without worrying a wayward spark from your joint causing an intense blaze. Here are a few drought-friendly ways to get high while you’re out enjoying nature this summer.
Make Use of Edibles
Edibles are by far the easiest way to enjoy a flameless high. While you can make them yourself, you can also buy pre-made options guaranteed to satisfy your hunger and get you high. All you have to do is pack a few favorites as a snack, head out in nature, and enjoy the experience. If you’re feeling industrious and heading out on a camping trip
, you can even whip up your own cannabis-infused meals. Just make sure you use a propane stove and ditch the campfire.
Opt for Tinctures
If you’re not wanting to bring a bunch of goodies in your backpack or are heading out on a week-long excursion in the woods, consider packing a tincture. These concentrated solutions pack a major punch and take up next to no room in your pack. Add a few drops to your water, place them directly under your tongue, or incorporate them into your dinner for a delicious treat that will help you relax at the end of a long day on the trail. Be aware of the flavor when selecting a tincture. The last thing you want to do is select a strawberry flavored tincture while planning to use it in savory dishes.
Stick With The Vape
For many marijuana enthusiasts, nothing compares to the experience of lighting up a joint, bong, or pipe. While those items are strictly forbidden during a fire ban, you don’t have to forego the smoking experience entirely. Instead, bring a portable vape pen with you on the trail. You’ll still have a similar smoke-like experience, just without the heat and flame traditional methods require. Unlike standard pipes and bongs, vape pens also produce a less severe smell, making them ideal for camping trips with non-smokers or occasions when you need to be discrete. Best of all, portable vapes are affordable and give you the chance to try a strain you might not otherwise have purchased.
Fire bans don’t mean you have to forgo your favorite pot while enjoying the great outdoors, but they do mean you need to be cautious about the types of products you take outside. Stop by Altitude Dispensary today and browse our menu of delicious edibles, potent tinctures, and convenient vape products. We’re sure you’ll find something to help you get high outside safely, no matter how long the fire bans and drought continue.
